We’ve created this really easy and nutritious weeknight meal because we are all about making weeknight cooking simpler.

The pesto could be store-bought, but we recommend using our perfect pesto recipe!


  • 3 large - zucchini
  • 2 - salmon fillets, around 100 g each
  • 1 tbsp - olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 3-4tbsp - pesto


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with paper.
  2. Place the salmon on the lined tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 8-10 minutes, depending on the size of your fillet. When done, remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. While the salmon is cooking, use a mandoline, julienne peeler or spiral slicer to cut the zucchini into long, thin strips. You can also use a standard peeler to cut the zucchini into thin ribbons.
  5. Place the zucchini in a saucepan with a tablespoon of water, and warm through on a low to medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring often to evenly distribute the heat.
  6. When the salmon is cool enough to handle, break it into chunks.
  7. Toss the salmon and pesto through the zucchini.
